Things have absolutely been crazy here and I mean Crazy! Here is a brief rundown......July second... get oldest daughter and grandson from bus station...Stacie has surgery and spends twenty four days in the hospital while I keep Daniel and work at my new job.....We have weekend company twice, Stacie finally gets out and then I get the phone call from my youngest daughter Lisa...."mom, the reason Mark and I are having marriage problems is because we both have drug problems and you better come to Portland tonight and get the kids because we cant take care of them.....I have now had Olivia, age six and Andrew eighteen months, since the twenty sixth of July. Lisa and Mark are getting a divorce and Lisa just entered and inpatient rehab....I also have gone from working part time to working full time...Do I make art? Hah! What is that? Actually I do, just have to squeeze it in when I have the energy...I am trying to get things running smoothly and that is a job in itself! Daniel and Liv start school soon and Stacie got a job and is doing well..She helps me a lot with the two little ones. I am going through all the legal custody things and arranging school and counseling and trying to do laundry, groceries, clean and all that too...I finally told Stacie that I have to sew or make something for at least a half hour a day or I will go bonkers!!!!I have finished a charity quilt for a girls club..They pieced it and I put it together and quilted it. I also made an embellished outfit for our stores fashion show and an auction that we are part of to benefit hospice.....It is a vest with paint sticked fabric and an art purse...The picture is of it hanging in the store...I also was published as an inchies artist in Quilting Arts magazine! Woo hoo! Can you find my inchies? and I am posting a picture of Liv that I took for the fun of it...We were playing at being fairies for an altered book spread for Color me Silly" My altered book group.....One day soon, I will get caught up and more organized! Until then, it is one day at a time or I will lose my marbles for good!!!!!Thanks for hanging with me!!!!
